“Unconscious First Aid Can Harm ‘Survival'”

SAFAKNA TURKEY – Instructor See. Seda Ashchi: “First Aid Unconscious Can Harm ‘Survival'”

“Training in first aid should be compulsory from elementary school”

ISTANBUL Stating that “we can damage the survival of the people” if the first aid provided after a natural disaster becomes unconscious, the lecturer stressed that education is a must. See. Seda Ashchi said, “We live in a country prone to earthquakes. To always be ready, first aid training should be compulsory from elementary school.”

Kahramanmaras After the earthquake of magnitude 7.7 and 7.6 in the center, all citizens who were in the area and transferred to the area were mobilized for search and rescue operations. A teacher at Esenyurt University’s Vocational School of Health who warns that everyone is trying their best, but sometimes kindness can be “harmful” if it’s unconscious. See. Seda Ashchi said: “In order to prevent this situation, everyone who lives in our country, which is in the earthquake zone, should always receive first aid training.” The cook also stressed that this education should be compulsory starting from elementary school.

“There are many things we can do to minimize their devastating effects”

The lecturer, who began his speech with the words “We cannot prevent catastrophes, but we can minimize their devastating consequences.” See. Seda Ashchi said: “We have to live face to face with natural disasters and this is one of the most important things humanity can do to minimize the devastating effects that can result from natural disasters. Much remains to be done in this regard. This is also where the concept of disaster management comes in. There is also crisis management under the concept of disaster management, and search and rescue is part of crisis management. Since we health professionals are usually under stress, we are a professional group that can organize and intervene very quickly for people who have been pulled from the rubble during crises and natural disasters. But, of course, medical workers may not be available everywhere and at any time, and yes, especially during an earthquake, “time” is very important for people who will be removed from the rubble. However, haste can sometimes lead to errors.

“If our benevolence is unconscious, it can harm survival”

Stating that intervening without knowledge of first aid could cause harm, Seda Ashchi continued her statements as follows:

“One of the first things that come to our mind when we talk about a disaster is an earthquake. You can also consider disasters such as floods and landslides by region, but in general, earthquakes with the most destructive effect. We are also a country in a seismic zone. We are a benevolent society and we have witnessed this in many earthquake scenes. Because of our emotionality and benevolence, we can sometimes harm the survival of people. Therefore, it is necessary to act a little more consciously. In our country, people should be more aware of first aid. For example, we cannot force a person who has come out from under the rubble to eat or drink something because he is hungry or thirsty, or when extracting an individual from under the rubble, he must be pulled out from under the arms along the axis of the body. Be sure to put it on a hard surface and attach a neck brace. Because if you do not wear a neck brace at this time, we can cause some injuries and lead to the fact that a healthy and healthy person will live as a disabled person throughout his life.

“Education should be compulsory”

Stating that people should receive first aid training for themselves and their loved ones in all sorts of difficult situations, Ashchi finally said: degree. coordinated, using time more efficiently by continuing these trainings. In fact, when we look at university education and the health sector, training is in disaster management and first aid. But other than that, it’s not required. First aid training should be compulsory even in elementary school. Even if you know how to give first aid, what you can do is limited, but every intervention you do before seeing a doctor is an intervention that increases survival. When you see a relative under the rubble, we would like to intervene and remove him due to his current desperate and emotional state. But when we do it consciously, we can do it without harm. In the same way, when we do it unconsciously, we may do it right, but as a result, we may make some mistakes. That is why education is always a very important concept under any circumstances, and it is not so difficult to achieve it. This was the problem we faced during the earthquake we experienced. We had few educated people. Unfortunately, since we live in a country affected by a natural disaster, we need to go through these trainings in the face of a situation that can happen to us as individuals, parents, siblings, friends and spouses at any time.”
